Nigel Slater’s Toast at York Theatre Royal from 19 to 23 November is a new play based on food writer Nigel Slater’s award-winning autobiography.

Vividly recreating suburban England in the 1960s, his childhood is told through the tastes and smells he grew up with and the audience is enveloped by the evocative sights and sounds of cookery that defined the definitive moments of his youth.

The play is written by Henry Filloux-Bennett, Chief Executive and Artistic Director of the Lawrence Batley Theatre in Huddersfield, where the UK tour of Toast launched after a season at The Other Palace in London.

Nigel said: “I’m thrilled that the play will continue its journey after The Other Palace, visiting venues around the country.”

He has been the food columnist for The Observer for 25 years and is the author of a collection of bestselling books and presenter of nine BBC television series. His memoir Toast – The Story of a Boy’s Hunger won six major awards, has been translated into five languages and became a BBC film starring Helena Bonham Carter and Freddie Highmore.
